| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Bulls general manager John Paxson schedule of interviews with head coaching candidates continues today.
Paxson met with former DePaul star and current four-year Utah Jazz assistant Tyrone Corbin Wednesday night.
Dwyane Casey, the former Minnesota Timberwolves head coach, was at the Berto Center to talk with Paxson Thursday. Casey could also land on the staff of new Dallas head coach Rick Carlisle, should he not get the Bulls job.
Paxson plans on hosting Jeff Hornacek today. Hornacek interviewed Phoenix GM Steve Kerr Thursday to talk about becoming the Suns next head coach. Corbin is due to meet with Kerr Friday.
Paxson also will meet with Chuck Person, a current assistant withe Sacramento Kings, perhaps as early as Saturday.
A source confirmed Paxson traveled to Los Angeles earlier in the week and met with Lakers assistants Brian Shaw and Kurt Rambis.
Both the Bulls and Suns are expected to ask for permission to talk to Boston Celtics assistant Tom Thibodeau. The Celtics do not want teams talking with Thibodeau during the Celtics playoff run.
Paxson has said he will hold more interviews with candidates when he is in Orlando next week for the league's pre-draft camp. The Bulls are interested in talking with Eric Snow, currently under contract as a player with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Please do not allow Rose to read all the trash about his performance in the Summer league. It is posted by "Monday night quarterbacking", hope he will throw out all the garbage and just play his type of game. I hate it when things are written and players judge on one game.
